The Cerebral Circulation
by Marilyn J. Cipolla
Publisher: Morgan & Claypool Life Sciences 2010
Number of pages: 70
This presentation describes structural and functional properties of the cerebral circulation that are unique to the brain, an organ with high metabolic demands, and the need for tight water and ion homeostasis. Autoregulation is pronounced in the brain, with myogenic, metabolic, and neurogenic mechanisms contributing to maintain relatively constant blood flow during both increases and decreases in pressure.
